All “coastalfunruns” full marathon courses are measured to equal a total distance of 42.195kms (42.2kms).
Depending on the location they will  contain any of the following..
– an out and back 21.1km loop, a point to point 42.195km, 6 x 7.0325km loops, 4 x 10.0km loops with an added 2.20km section or 4 x 10.55km loops.
Some of our courses are AIMS certified and measured. 
Effective from 10/09/2017..
All distances (with the exception of the 50 km, 100 km & 100 mile distances) now have a cut-off time of 8 hours. No exceptions.
(This is a very relaxed cut-off time and one of the reasons is so that we do not put added pressure on our awesome volunteers time).
All marathon distance races (42.195km) must have a minimum of 3 finishers to be eligible to count as an official marathon with the BRAVERUNNERS AUSNZ 100 Marathon Club.
Effective from December 2018..
“coastalfunruns” will be guided by the South Australian Sports Medicine Association (SASMA) with regards to their Hot Weather Guidelines. This will form our “heat policy” and can be viewed here..

Effective from Jan 1st 2019..
“coastalfunruns” is THE ORIGINAL series of annual low cost, low key coastal fun running community events held in South Australia and proudly supporting our nominated charities. 
Our costs are one of the lowest in Australia and will remain so indefinitely. We encourage all runners/walkers to enter events as early as possible to ensure a smoother event day. Finisher medals and bibs need to be ordered at least one week from the event date to ensure they arrive on time. Online entries will remain open until 12 midday a few days before each event date unless notified otherwise. There will be NO on the day entries.
In 2019 and beyond “coastalfunruns” events will be cup free. You will need to provide your own form for drinking the provided sports drinks and water..
Effective from March 1st 2021..
. We are very low cost, low key with a heavy focus on the fun and enjoyment of running. We continue to remain as flexible as possible with most rules and regulations, but at the same time there is a need to add the following guidelines effective immediately. To keep some level of professionalism we need to set some fixed rules in place. All runners must start at the scheduled start time for all distances at all events.
Any early starts are only allowable with good reason by prior arrangement with “coastalfunruns” at least 24 hours before the event start time.
Please be aware we start on time and cannot wait for any late comers. If you are late your time will be recorded from GUN time.
You must also stay in the distance you nominated and registered for and cannot decide to drop back to a shorter distance or run a longer distance without prior arrangement with “coastalfunruns” at least 24 hours before the event start time.
This ensures our medal count and bib allocation is correct for all distances and makes our volunteers work much easier including the recording of finish times as we currently use a manual timing system.
Also no deviations from the actual event course during your run/walk.
Effective from Jan  12th 2023.
Virtual runs have always been an option at all our “coastalfunruns” events and we appreciate the support of those who cannot attend the event in person. The only criteria is that they are run on the same day as the registered event.
